Norah Jones – That's The Way The World Goes 'round lyrics

I know a guy
That's got a lot to lose
He's a pretty nice guy
But he's kind of confused
He's got muscles in his head
That ain't never been used
Thinks he own half of this town

Starts drinking heavy
Gets a big red nose
Beats his old lady
With a rubber hose
Then he takes her out to dinner
And buys her new clothes
That's the way that the world goes 'round.

That's the way that the world goes 'round
You're up one day
And the next you're down
It's half an inch of water
And you think you're gonna drown
That's the way that the world goes 'round.

I was sitting in the bathtub
Counting my toes
When the radiator broke
Water all froze
I got stuck in the ice
Without my clothes
Naked as the eyes of a clown

I was crying ice cubes
Hoping I'd croak
When the sun come through the window
The ice all broke
I stood up and laughed
Thought it was a joke
That's the way that the world goes 'round
